TAMWORTH residents are urged to dig deep this festive season and give to those who aren’t as fortunate.

The city’s Kmart Store celebrated the 30th anniversary of its Wishing Tree appeal on Wednesday, with local school students and community members joining in on the fun.

Up until Christmas eve, locals are invited to place a gift under the wishing tree at the Tamworth Square Store, which will go directly to the Salvation Army’s Christmas appeal.

There is no limit to how big or small the gift could be, the only stipulation is it has to be new and not second hand.

Gifts can be purchased from any business and placed under the tree. However staff have asked that they aren’t wrapped.

The gifts will then be distributed to local people in need in time for Christmas.
